Due to new regulations, a global identification code has been introduced for trading in securities. Each company is required to have an LEI-code.

How do I order an LEI?

You can apply for an LEI directly from an issuer or via an intermediary. The Legal Entity Identifier Regulatory Oversight Committee (LEI ROC) has produced a list of approved issuers.

How much does an LEI cost and how long does it take?

Depending on the issuer, an LEI costs between SEK 750 and SEK 1 500 for the first year. Subsequent annual fees are between SEK 500 and SEK 1 000. To be able to trade in securities, it is important that you update your LEI every year and pay the annual fee. It will usually take around 5-7 business days to receive your LEI. However, if many companies are applying, it may take longer.

Important information:

  • It takes 5-7 business days to get an LEI, so allow plenty of time.
  • Renew your LEI annually.
